Just yesterday, we ran a recent interview with Clark Gregg from Digital Spy in which he talked about his hopes of a Black Widow film becoming a reality at some point, even though Kevin Feige has previously stated that while there are no plans for a Black Widow, she would continue to be a big player in other films throughout Phase Three of the MCU. Now today, Digital Spy has released another portion of that interview, this time turning the focus to the Inhumans, the race that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had the opportunity to introduce back in season two.

One of the biggest questions fans have been asking since episode ten of season two of S.H.I.E.L.D., “What They Become”, which saw two characters undergo the Terrigen Mist, was whether or not the show would have an impact on the planned Inhumans film set to be released in 2019. Unsurprisingly, Gregg believes that the film will be its own thing separate from the Inhuman story they’ve built on S.H.I.E.L.D., although he hopes to see the two connect in some way.

“The Inhumans movie I suspect will be its own cinematic version,” Gregg explained​. “That writer and director will have free reign to do what they want to do with the Inhumans, but hopefully there’ll be some way that our Inhumans connect to that. It’d be too bad if that was wasted.”

As we’ve seen over the course of three seasons now, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is at the top of its game when it manages to withhold the constant Marvel Cinematic Universe references – something that was common during the first season. Once it began to precede the films, being the property with the ability to introduce Inhumans into this massive cinematic universe, S.H.I.E.L.D. reaffirmed its worth to the MCU – and that’s something that Gregg seemingly echoes in a comment to Digital Spy.

“What’s kind of necessary for the show to work is that it is its own thing and it’s not dependent upon those crossovers,” he added.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is currently on hiatus while Agent Carter returns for a second season, will return to ABC in March for season 3B. As always, for all things S.H.I.E.L.D. be sure to follow along here.
